Carbon emissions, CO2e, carbon footprint: these are just a few of the expressions that come up regularly in our conversations about the climate crisis. And every day, we see more and more carbon footprint information on different products and services. But the majority of people don’t know what this information means. Consequently, they lack the confidence to take climate action.
In theory, equipping people with knowledge about their carbon footprint would improve their carbon literacy and encourage them to measure and reduce their environmental impact.
We decided to test this theory in an online study with CogCo. We also wanted to learn how we can present carbon footprint information in a way that improves people’s carbon literacy.

We don’t need a crystal ball to predict that economies globally will likely get worse before they get better; or that energy prices and interest rates will continue to rise. But what does it all mean for the climate; consumers and banks? Emma Kisby, Cogo’s CEO UK/EU; and Julie Lindenberg, Cogo’s CEO APAC, sat down recently to discuss the themes they believe will play out over the months ahead and what it will take for us all to achieve lasting change.
At Cogo, we believe that climate action is a team sport. In our partnering for change series, we sit down with some of our valued partners to talk about the importance of forging purposeful connections to help drive change, their sustainability journeys, and why collective action is key to changing the world.
As global leaders gathered in Egypt for COP27 over the past two weeks, it became clear that the only way out of the climate crisis is together. This week, as the conference is aptly followed by International Leadership Week, we’re sharing how business leaders can think beyond their teams and organisations to the communities and collaborators that will make positive climate action and goals possible.
